so yesterday i only had to work for a couple of hours.. then the power went out and the "to go home or not to go home" (i was the ONLY one who showed up at the office) dilemma was solved for me. luckily, my apartment never lost power. :)
monday night when i went home, fluffy came to the screen of the crawlspace cover and started to cry. i was so not impressed; fluffy was stuck. there are, i dunno, air vents around the length of the house.. very small little windows with screens over them. i went to one of the air vents to look inside and saw THREE sets of eyes reflecting back at me - fluffy, kitten, and her new best friend, bigote. the air vent had a big slit it in already, so i ripped it the rest of the way and called to the cats. fluffy wanted out but wasn't convinced he'd fit so kept going back to the screen. it was so sad. finally he tried through the air vent and scooted his way out, just barely fitting. luckily, kitten and bigote are both smaller so should have no problem getting in or out.
i spoke with the landlord later and he said that i shouldn't worry about the outdoor cats - there's an air vent at the front of the house that's open so they can still get in for the storm. so i guess i shouldn't be as mad as i was when i discovered the three cats were apparently sealed in the crawlspace.
kitten has gotten good at coming to my door and crying when she wants in. today, she was out there with bigote. isn't that just the funniest? from the second he approached her outside, she was nice to him. and now they're BFF. what is it about bigote that's different from EVERY OTHER CAT ON THE PLANET that somehow makes him acceptable? strange.
ok, so that's the cat drama for the day. i got a project i gotta finish, so offa here for me..
btw - no hurricane scariness here. just some tornados yesterday a few miles from my house! and lots of rain!
